Rivers Run Deep

No rhymes to part my waiting lips
No words to tease my fingertips
My muse has gone on walkabout
When did the storm become a drought?

No brush to paint the empty space
No pen to sketch the smiling face
My world is grey with black and white
What happened to the coloured light?

And yet I know that beauty’s face
Can never fade without a trace
And dreams are conjured in our sleep
For rivers that inspire run deep

Seize the Day: Favourite Inspirational Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together favourite inspirational poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of life, celebrating the indomitable human spirit.. It includes many old favourites like “Poets Must Be” and “Chasing the Blue”, as well as brand new poems like “The Writer” and “Making Ripples”. Sages through the ages wisely say: / Carpe Diem – seize the dawning day / Oh, would that I could assuage that thirst / But the day conspires to seize me first! / With the hurry and scurry / Of home’s frantic flurry / And the hustle and bustle / Of work’s tangled tussle. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
